Auburn Automobiles 1900-1936 - Photo Archive

From its inception through the early twenties, Auburn produced a fine car at a reasonable price. In 1924, E.L. Cord took over operation of the company and things began to change. Cord, a consummate salesman, dolled-up the conservative Auburn and made it into an object of style and taste. Sales increased dramatically.

Auburns participated in many speed and endurance challenges and broke many records. In the thirties, Auburns were well known as high-performance vehicles, using both eight and twelve cylinder engines.
Going out in a blaze of glory the 1935-36 boattail speedster, with a body designed by the famous Gordon Buegrig, was guaranteed by the factory to do at least 100 miles per hour.

High quality photos and informative captions take you through the evolution of the Auburn.

Auburn Cord Duesenberg - Racers & Record-Setters - Photo Archive

From the very beginnings of the automobile industry, manufacturers had to prove the mettle of their products in order to stand out from the multitude of rival companies.
One of the best means to accomplish this was by winning races and establishing high-speed endurance records. No one pursued this concept more aggressively than those merchants of speed, E. L. Cord and the Duesenberg brothers, Fred and Augie.

Ride along with some of the era's most talented and daring drivers as they put Auburns, Cords and Duesenbergs through their paces. The extensive archival collection of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum brings us spectacular photographs of these three marques as they gain laurels in the crucible of competition.
Informative captions tell the story of the dauntless efforts of men and machines as they raise the bar of automotive engineering during the formative days of the American automobile.
